And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. Luke 17:17
The word “perfect” can be translated to mean “complete, whole and lacking nothing”. It also means “excellent, flawless, finished and entire”. When we live lives of consistent thanksgiving, the peace of God guards our hearts in anticipation of our answers. The prayer of thanksgiving perfects what God has begun to do in our lives.
Thanksgiving takes us into a place of perfection- a place where we lack nothing of the present will of God for our lives. This is clearly seen in the story of the lepers who came to Jesus. We well know the story that everyone of the ten lepers got healed after Jesus commanded them healed; however one of the healed lepers got more than just a healing from leprosy- he got perfection of that which concerns him. This was the same leper who alone turned back and returned to glorify God.
